Rush included in FiveThirtyEight.com study of classic rock radio
12:34PM EST | comments |

Moving Pictures coverWalt Hickey at FiveThirtyEight.com posted an article today where he details the findings of a study of classic rock radio he recently conducted. Hickey monitored 25 classic rock radio stations operating in 30 of the country's largest metropolitan areas for one week in June. He found that the 10-year period from 1973 to 1982 accounts for a whopping 57% of all song plays. This period of time also happens to be Rush's golden era, where they released their first 9 studio albums, 7 of which were certified Platinum - including the Multi-Platinum selling 2112 and Moving Pictures albums. Hickey found that Rush's indisputable biggest hit - Tom Sawyer from Moving Pictures - was the 15th most-played song in classic rock radio. The band was also #21 on the list of the most-played artists, with Kansas City as the city that played Rush the most. You can check out the complete findings online at this location.
